A Patriotic Mani


I decided to get creative for the 4th. Didn't turn out too bad, though it took me 3 hours to do, whew!

I started with clear base coat, then 3 coats of Zoya - Gaia. Then 2 diagonal coats of the blue OPI - Dating a Royal. Topped the blue with 1 coat of Orly - Prisma Gloss Silver. The stars are the hardest to do, I used the tip of the brush with 1 star on it and placed them 1 at a time where I wanted them. I've tried using these type of polishes as a topcoat, but the shapes seem to stay in the bottle and maybe get one or two per coat. It just looks messy. I let the polishes dry at least 15 minutes between colors so I wouldn't have any smearing. Then used Seche Vite topcoat to seal the entire nail.

I hope I can go chip free for a couple of days!!
